Didier Daglinckx's insight:

One of our graduate students here at UC is investigating the movement of artifacts from the origin to archaeological find spot.

 

She had been gathering her data in a FileMaker Pro database and wanted to be able to visualize the quantity of material either sourced or found in various cities.

 

Since she already had a data table of cities with coordinates gathered from Google Earth, I decided to see if I could get FileMaker to talk directly to Google Earth. 

 

This database is the result.

Think Your App Is Beautiful? Not Without User Experience Design | Smashing Magazine - Filemaker tip

Think Your App Is Beautiful? Not Without User Experience Design | Smashing Magazine - Filemaker tip | Learning Filemaker | Scoop.it
In the mid-2000s, digital designers tended to fall into one of two buckets: user experience design (UX) and visual design (although titles varied).

Visual design was, in a sense, applied graphic design, and it brought UX to life in pixels.

 

...

 

Great design is a synthesis of art and science, of aesthetics, usability and a deep understanding of user needs and behaviors. To succeed, we need a balance. Beauty that isn’t part of holistic, effective product design will be wasted.

Button Image Masks in FileMaker 13 | the beezwax buzz

Button Image Masks in FileMaker 13 | the beezwax buzz | Learning Filemaker | Scoop.it

When you've been using FileMaker as long as I have, you know we've done all kinds of crazy things to get image masks to work on our buttons.


For example, we would use a set of grouped native FileMaker line objects to cover an image just to get an ugly looking mask.


I hope that not many developers suffered for too long using that technique.

Disponemos en el mercado de estas dos grandes herramientas para el desarrollo de aplicaciones empresariales, ambas con sus ventajas y con sus inconvenientes pero ambas con un potencial inigualable esperando que un usuario se ponga a exprimir todas sus opciones.

 

Tanto Microsoft Access como FileMaker están enfocadas a lo mismo, su concepto es idéntico aunque cambien la forma de hacer las cosas ligeramente.

Estas herramientas podríamos meterlas en el grupo de herramientas para usar en la oficina, por personal que, a priori, no necesita conocimientos avanzados de informática para empezar a utilizarlas.

Y con ellas podemos manejar gran parte de la información que utilizamos en nuestro día a día desde crear formularios para introducir datos hasta lanzar los más avanzados informes que nos devuelvan la información estructurada.

Eigentlich wollte Alexander Baier Kommilitonen, die nicht aus dem Informatikbereich kommen, bei ihrer Datenbankarbeit unterstützen.

Viele suchten nach einer besseren Alternative zu Access und landeten schließlich bei FileMaker.

Zu diesem Zweck erstellte der 28-Jährige Student der Angewandten Informatik an der Universität Konstanz Lehr-Videos, um sie Freunden und Kommilitonen zur Verfügung zu stellen.

Irgendwann kam er auf die Idee, seine Tutorials auch anderen Datenbank-Interessierten im Internet anzubieten.
